* What is the barnacle's name anyway? Does he not even have a name? Did his mother die before he could even be named? Is it just a case of EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep? Is it that his name [[TheScottishTrope must not be mentioned?]]

** I believe that people grew superstitious as the barnacle continued to kill people with his presence. His name could have become taboo, through some primitive belief that it would summon him.

** By "everyone dying", this would include security guards, water purifiers, farmers and other people. The Ugly Barnacle would of eventually starved to death since no one would be able to manage resources for him, causing his stomach to eat itself and become too weak to live.

** Maybe everyone only meant all sentient living things died, leaving out single-celled organisms (bacteria and protists aren't usually thought of as on the same level as a multicellular organism). Life then re-evolved from these survivors.

** Because we're just weird like that. Have you ''seen'' some of the things tropers say and do? The whole damn website qualifies as its own CloudCuckooLand.

** "Throwaway"? This is a revealing look into the mind of Cloudcuckoolander Patrick! Who could've thought that such a happy-go-lucky starfish had such an appreciation for the dark side of literature?

** See above about how "everyone died" in a story generally only refers to the important characters, not literally every single person in the Universe.
